The Walking Dead Season 5: What happened to Beth? Emily Kinney talks!

walking-dead-season-5-emily kinney

When last we saw Beth Greene — the once fragile blossom who wanted to kill herself in her mama’s bed in Season 2 of AMC’s pop culture phenomenon The Walking Dead — she was being swept away in a big, black, cross-bedecked car after a liberating few days in the woods with Daryl (Norman Reedus). While the Season 5 trailer reveals that Beth is holding her own — and proving she can take a punch — in what appears to be a brutal asylum of some sort, rumors of the arrival of Negan and other baddies from the comic book … Continue reading

walking-dead-season-5-andrew-lincoln-norman-reedus

Here’s what we know about Season 5 so far, Walking Dead faithful. The action picks up right where Season 4 left off, and co-executive producer Robert Kirkman promises that we’ll learn more about the residents of Terminus from the get-go in a season that will adhere closely to the comic-book storylines. And yes, despite horrific snippets of what looks like a human slaughterhouse in the lightning-paced Season 5 trailer, our captives in that train car do appear to escape, thanks to Dr. Eugene’s (Josh McDermitt) promise of a cure in Washington, D.C. • MORE: The Walking Dead Season 5: Does … Continue reading

The Walking Dead: Josh McDermitt on what’s ahead for Dr. Eugene Porter and Co.

With just two episodes left in The Walking Dead Season 4, we’re all on the march to Terminus, right? Er, right? Even if not all of us are exactly aware that that’s what we’re doing? And if it’s a good idea or not. Plus, we’ve got some new folks along for the ride. Dr. Eugene Porter, Sgt. Abraham Ford and Rosita Espinosa — the long-awaited fan favorites from The Walking Dead graphic novels — have swerved off their mission to get the mullet-noggined, trigger-happy Eugene to Washington, D.C., and are tagging along with Glenn and Tara at his insistence. And … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 10 ‘Inmates’: So good to see you again!

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 10 ‘Inmates’: So good to see you again!

After last week’s slow dance with Rick, Carl and Michonne, post prison collapse, the fates of the rest of The Walking Dead prison crew (plus one) were revealed on last night’s shock-and-awe episode, ‘Inmates’. And surprises came equally fast and furious. But I have to say this right out of the gate — in the case of some of the episode’s biggest reveals, a little more show and less tell, perhaps over the span of one additional expository episode, would have made for a much deeper emotional wallop, even if they will be fleshed out in future outings. Show me … Continue reading

The Walking Dead recap Season 4 episode 6: ‘Live Bait’

Walking Dead Governor Megan

Well, well. Maybe ol’ Hershel is right after all and you really can come back from the bad things that happen to you here in the walker-pocalypse. Because of all the gents I expected to remain the epitome of ice-blooded, comrade-killing evil, Philip “The Governor” Blake is it. And yet, there he was, the most sinister guy we’ve yet to encounter on The Walking Dead, broken, abandoned and facedown in the street before the vision of a little girl in a window brought him back to his feet and back to life as a — gulp! — lion-hearted family protector … Continue reading
